"It's a great piece and certainly worthy of attention!" - Brandon MacNeil, Parma Recordings A&R Director commenting on Blue Ballet Suite
"I listened to your recordings – very nice! Great chord changes throughout (Dancing On Water was really sweet!), keyboard work and vocals – reminds me a little of Steely Dan mixed with Stevie Wonder and Level 42. I had no idea you could sing like that. I especially liked Robo-Girl! Your friend Richard has a nice touch on guitar, too. Congrats!"
